We can't recommend The Wellwood enough! First of all, the value for what you get is unparalleled! I priced out numerous similar venues in the area and others charge 1.5-2x the price. The venue and ceremony locations are beautiful. Angela, the wedding coordinator, was a pleasure to work with- from signing the paperwork to the day of execution. The day itself went very smoothly (which is saying a lot, considering it rained!). Angela and her team covered every detail. We had plenty to eat due to Angela setting us up with our own appetizers, then plates as soon as dinner was served, and even extra dinners to go for us to enjoy later that night! The food was absolutely delicious- we've heard from so many of our guests that they enjoyed the passed apps (coconut shrimp, pork potstickers, mini crab cakes, and mini chicken wellingtons) and the main courses (chicken marsala, roast beef, salad, soup, sides). Angela went above and beyond- even helping me bustle my dress and tie it up when I was starting to overheat! The Wellwood also has beautiful, modern cottage right next door that we were able to get ready in the day before. There's a set of 2 pocket doors that allow you to divide the cottage in half (with an entrance on each side) so that my husband and I were able to get ready on separate sides and not see each other. Getting ready so close to the venue and being able to stay there that night made our wedding day that much easier. Definitely consider (and choose!) the Wellwood.Sent on 09/23/2018

I cannot say anything but positive things about the Wellwood and Angela! We had the most perfect wedding there, and Angela was there to help every step of the way! Angela worked with me for over a year to help me plan my big day and she was very responsive and flexible whenever we met with her. We were concerned that we would not have enough space to store all of our decor, or enough time to set up the venue on the day of the wedding so Angela and her team allowed us to start setting up some of our stuff the night before the wedding to make sure that everything got done. Angela coordinated the rehearsal and the rehearsal dinner to make sure that everything went smooth, and she was there during each step of the wedding day whether that was to drive me to my first look photos, made sure that my husband and I got a little time to ourselves on a get-away bus between the ceremony and reception that was packed with the appetizers that we might not have been able to have otherwise, made sure that my husband and I (plus our parents) had drinks throughout the night and she even got me a safety pin ASAP when my dress came apart on the top. I would HIGHLY recommend the Wellwood and Angela and her team for any event that anyone is planning!Sent on 07/04/2018

We could not be happier with choosing the Wellwood for our September 9th wedding!!! Angela made sure that from the beginning of the planning process to the very last minute of our night, everything ran as smooth as could be. The day was absolutely stress free because of her and wonderful staff. Angela went above and beyond to accommodate for us. She even took the time to pack us to go containers of our meals in case we did not get the chance to eat. It just showed that she really does love what she does and cares for the couples that choose the Wellwood. We cannot say enough great things about her.Sent on 09/18/2017
The venue itself was great as well. The scenery was absolutely perfect, since we got to say "I do" with the beautiful water view in the background. Our food was delicious, and we have heard nothing but compliments about how good everything was and how people cannot wait to go back there for dinner.
We would recommend the Wellwood in a heartbeat to anyone considering having their wedding there!
